So what's the villain you hate, fear - or even respect through fear - the most? Is the villain so real you can almost feel his presence behind you? Pick the villain that sends shivers down your spine - yet maybe you have no idea how to explain why. And as a second challenge, if you write stories yourself, pick your scariest, most well-developed villain you've made.
Or give it a twist. Terrible Tuesdays can be about anyone. What if the character just happened to be your freakish hero?
So what is mine? The character who gives me the absolute creeps is Rigou, from the BBC broadcast of Little Dorrit.
And what about my own characters? There could be no other man that literally freezes the marrow in bones than Darian Koth. Leader of the Forecasters, the evil, barbaric magicians seeking to sap all the world of its magic... and the dragons with it.
Post your character below. Choose wisely - Sauron won't be happy if someone doesn't pick him.
